Recently two friends of mine celebrated their wedding anniversary at Craigie on Main. They really enjoyed their meal only to have it spoiled by their dessert experience. One friend who is lactose intolerant, noticed that all of the desserts, except the sorbet offering, were dairy based. She told the wait staff of her condition and asked if she could have the fresh strawberries with sorbet instead of the accompanying buttermilk ice cream (the menu advises patrons to alert the wait staff of any food allergies). They told her that they would ask the kitchen then came back to say that the chef refused to make the substitution. So much for accommodating people with food allergies. Needless to say they and their friends upon hearing of this experiences, will think twice about going back to Craigie on Main.
